Default ADVC 1000 or ADVC 300 for old VHS tapes.

Hello. I want to conver my old VHS tapes. Tell me please, is it true that Canopus ADVC 1000 doesn't have noise reduction and other filters from ADVC 300? I already paid some days ago for ADVC 1000 and I'm afraid that I was so stupid to buy it if it is not better than ADVC 300.
Thank you.

Looks to me that the ADVC-1000 is for conversion of SDI to/from DV (IEEE 1934), not for converting typical consumer analog VHS to DV. Does your VHS player provide SDI output? I do not see any noise reduction mention in the specs of the 1000.

It strikes me that the ADVC-300 is more suitable for converting typical VHS analog video to DV, and does include some noise reduction capability.

The ADVC-700 looks like the broadcast line product for converting analog video to DV, but does not mention noise reduction.

Last VCRs of VHS tape era such as from Panasonic or JVC had a better optimized noise algorithms for VHS noise and more efficient (Full-Frame) TBCs than ADVC 300. So if it is really important to preserve quaility I'd try and research getting one of those. Great resource for this type of information is http://forum.videohelp.com/forums/41-Restoration

There are some things you can fix off-line by using software such as Neat Video, but it will add some rendering time.

ADVC 300 is great for analog to digital conversion, but the VHS noise should be reduced at the source as much as possible, this is far more efficient in my experience.

I have no opinion on ADVC 1000.
